I really liked the drama. The acting was very good, especially Takei Emi's, she really embraced having two different characters. The two twins were very distinct - from the way they talked down to the gaze and gestures they made, which is something that I appreciated a lot. I have to agree with a lot of people, though, I did not really like the ending

While I found quite a lot of things to be predictable, the show managed to surprise me with Michihiko's being the mastermind behind everything. Although once they revealed it did seem like the most likely choice. What bothered me about the ending was the usual "give everyone a happy ending" that from the few drama I have seen so far seems to be pretty normal en jdramas. The just forgive and forget and go back to their usual lives as if nothing? Dislike. Dislike!

Overall it's a good drama with a very well done performance by the whole cast, so it's definitely worth the watch. 3.5/5 (4 for simplicity's sake and because I liked the acting)

Awesomeeeeee!!! Emi chan was effin perfect , even tho she plays the 2 main roles you totally can tell apart Satsuki and Mako (like they were being playing by 2 different actress). Actually all the cast is awesome and the ost is beautiful ♥ . The end is not bad but maybe i was expecting a little more. Anyway i rated as masterpiece considerating i haven't watch a good drama in a while and this was definetly more than very good
kenta was too obsessive at first and inreand you may want to punch him -orkisshim- but was a nice -hot- guy anyway. I always thought he was obsessed with Satsuki and i like them as a couple...No with Mako lol

Takei Emi was kind of unexpectedly good in this (with some slips in some moments, but well).
I like Kenta, but I would have honestly punched his character in the face multiple times,
because you can be a policeman or whatever, nothing gives you the right to treat people like scum because they sell their body or anything. Also, instead of being the hero he probably was meant to be, he just gave me the impression of a freaky stalker.

Satsuki was my hero. <3

It's just amazing. I was worried at first it'd be a bad horror but instead it's a really good light thriller. I love the ending.
I do wish that Mako and Keiichirou became an actual couple.

Sounds like an older version of The Parent Trap
